First UK Poster for Ridley Scott's Robin Hood Looks Familiar
Wait a second, that looks a lot like the photo we used in our trailer article. But then again, who didn't think Universal would whip up posters for Ridley Scott's Robin Hood with Russell Crowe pointing an arrow at somebody. I'm featuring this, thanks to our UK friends at HeyUGuys, because I'm curious about how they're going to market this movie. I have a feeling a poster like this (probably the US version with the same photo) will be the first thing that some people will see from this new Robin Hood. And I'm wondering if they're going to look at this and think "awesome" or "lame"? What are your first thoughts looking at this poster?
Follows Robin (Russell Crowe) from his early days in King Richard's army to his return to Nottingham to his creation of a band of mercenaries who challenge the sheriff and eventually try to prevent civil war.
